Ash Wednesday can become mechanical and routine. We have ashes placed on our foreheads and we begin to think about what we may need to give up but it's so much more than that. The scripture readings are calling us to pray, fast and almsgiving. But there's a hidden meaning...

"It's about a realization that I'm part of an enormous communion that's held by the divine"
